One can safely say that acne plagues most people at one time or another. Even the fairest and the smoothest of all skins have experienced a pimple eruption once or twice. But one must remember that acne does not only appear on the face but on other parts of the body as well. One of the most difficult areas in treating acne is the back area. First, the back is a particularly hard area to reach. Second, back acne is different from the typical facial acne that we often encounter. This is because the skin at the back is thicker and requires a totally different kind of treatment. And lastly, unlike the face, back acne is subjected to constant contact from clothing and even the occasional load we carry on our back (e.g. backpacks, etc.)
So here’s the big question? How do we actually get rid of back acne? Well just like any acne problem, you can always turn to the good old acne creams that are easily available in our pharmacy shelves. The only trick to this is to find the right kind of medication that will suit the type of acne that you are curing. And after you find the right kind of medication, stick to it!
And since sweat and oil are two of the major contributors to acne eruptions, try not to wear thick and rough clothes that might cause sweat and oil to stick to your back for long periods of time. Instead, wear clothes that are soft and comfortable such as cotton. Since backpacks can also contribute to back acne eruptions maybe its time to find a better alternative such as a shoulder or sling bag – something that won’t put too much pressure on your back.
One of the most important things that you need to remember in treating back acne is to find the right kind of medication for this type of skin problem. The safest thing to do is to seek honest recommendations from past sufferers or ask helpful advice from a skin professional before heading out to the store. This will save you precious time and money from buying medications that may not be suitable for you at all. Lastly, follow these simple and easy precautions as dutifully as you can and you will find your back acne gone in no time!
